The rhythm of the world, isn’t so obscured here as to be imperceptible: Although I long to be upstate again (‘midst the trees, peaks, the ancient cemeteries,) I steel myself for a moment here, and hear: an insistent beating, of is. is. is.
Evie Singer-Frishman, is an American/Israeli, punk rock Buddhist, queer, poly, trans dyke, and poet/spoken word artist.
Informed by the likes of Gary Snyder, T'ao Ch'ien and Julia Serano, Ms. Singer- Frishman's poems refuse to hang the reader up with ego driven, adjective weighted lines, and instead, draw them into intimate moments of transformation, where words themselves become secondary, and one is left haunted by the feeling that the experience on the page had been ones' own all along.
Her past writings have appeared in multiple editions of Metromorphosis and Public Illumination Magazine, as well as on velvetparkmedia.com.
Evie's first book of poetry, "Things Missed in Exile", is available either through Nirala Publishing, or from the author at readings or by request. A limited number of signed copies are currently available through St. Mark's Books, in New York.
Evie shares her two homes with her primary partner, Carrie, and a very tenacious houseplant. The two live between NYC, and Kerhonkson, in the Catskill mountains of Upstate New York.
She performs her spoken word throughout New York, and can be booked for special engagements.
